Here's the kid that took a shit in the urinel
they picked on him and threw his books down in the hallway
used to eat from the empty tray lunches
gave him rides home from school
kids told me I wasn't cool
yet who are they anyway
folks said he went off in the Army
many years would pass having every reason to grasp
where has he been
then I was a security guard
in a mentally insane facility
I heard his name over the loud speaker
now he was locked up for all eternity
the great Jimmy Foley
the talk of the town
a challenge to be free is a question of time
